2008 Ettore Germano Barolo Prapo

Merchant Reviews
In 1990, Sergio Germano returned from oenology school to his family's six hectares in Serralunga d'Alba. As a fourth-generation wine grower -- in a part of Barolo where most farmers sold their grapes to Fontanafredda, the largest négociant in the region -- Sergio moved their entire production to estate vinification and bottling within two years. The Nebbiolo vines grown in the Prapò vineyard of Serralunga d'Alba are almost 40 years old and yield very structured fruit, dark in color and high in phenols. The resulting wine, traditionally vinified in 15-hectoliter botti for two years before bottling, is muscular and flavorful, with dried-fruit aromatics, large-scaled tannins, and dry, persistent finish. Fewer than 3500 bottles of this complex, long-lasting wine are produced each year.
